This workout is dedicated to Maxton Soviak, a Navy corpsman from Erie County, who was one of 13 Americans killed in the suicide bombing that took place at the Kabul, Afghanistan airport on August 26, 2021.
Born on January 22, 1999, Maxton Soviak was a Berlin Heights native who graduated from Edison High School in 2017. He was killed when two suicide bombers detonated explosives near the airport gate. The attack killed 13 Americans and more than 100 Afghans, while 100 more were wounded. An affiliate of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria terror group, commonly known as ISIS, claimed responsibility for the attack.
It was through an assignment last September to assist the Marine Corps that Mr. Soviak, 22, later became stationed in Afghanistan. His previous postings had included time in Guam from April, 2018, to July, 2020.
During his tour on Guam, you would find Max at the gym during his off-duty time. Whether doing CrossFit, teaching kids wrestling class, training with jiu-jitsu, or grappling. He was new to CrossFit, but he excelled in the sport and was motivated to keep doing better. He loved making the box his “playground” and enjoyed doing a lot of gymnastic movements.
This workout was designed by James Estrada, owner of CrossFit Latte Stone @crossfitlattestone (Tamuning, Guam). It consists of Max’s favorite CrossFit movements.
I programmed this WOD for Max and what I remembered as being his favorite movements that he always wanted to do. My fondest memory of him was always doing crazy workouts together and being the ones at the box who would be there for hours working out. – James Estrada
